CР°sa Terrades by Josep Puig i Cadafalch is also known as "Casa de les Punxes", or The Needle House, thanks to its six spires. Built in 1903-1905, it resembles a fairy tale castle or a German town hall and is possibly not the best work of Josep Puig i Cadafalch, but the most famous for sure. The architect was faced with a challenging task of accommodating Casa Terrades into an irregular spot of land left at the intersection of Diagonal and an Eixample street. The result was rational by intention and modernist by execution: detailed carvings selectively cover the facade, sharp-cornered pediments are decorated with panels, and the central turret is very Gothic in essence. Casa Terrades is also unique because it is the only fully detached building in Eixample.
